CUMBERLAND
By
ESTHER JACKSON WIRGMAN

Out of a mountain of limestone rock,
Hewn by a chisel of steel,
Carving the mighty, stony block
By power of steam and wheel,
Once in the pioneer days, long past,
Thou at the gateway stood,
Leading forth to a wilderness vast,
Unknown and unsubdued.
But a sure glory now thou must feel,
Stirring thy rugged breast.
Thou art the link of iron and steel
Joining the East and the West.
